EMI mines Duran Duran vaults for expanded DVD and CD releases

Posted April 7th, 2009 by Eric Greenwood · 3 Comments

On June 30, 2009, EMI plans to release two double-disc sets of vintage Duran Duran material. The first set is a live DVD/CD of Duran Duran’s triumphant show at the Hammersmith Odeon in late 1982, cleverly titled Live at Hammersmith ’82!, as the band was first exploding in the UK with its second album Rio. That show features one of the band’s cult b-sides, a cover of Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel’s “Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me).”
